Drywired was pleased to sponsor the 2˚C AIA/LA Symposium on Climate Change. Our access to bleeding edge technology and our ability to accelerate the transition of technology from research to industry will continue to empower architects to design more environmentally conscious buildings.
The 2°C Symposium is a unifying platform for the public, the architectural design community and the building industry to discuss and address the sustainability issues challenging our society today.
Unfortunately, even with global awareness of and commitment to acting on climate change, we cannot rely on public policy mandates in the US to drive the important changes needed in creating the built environment. Los Angeles needs to take action. As architects and stakeholders within the built environment we need to use our expertise to lead and inspire the building industry. 2°C will embrace current innovations in the industry and progress the dialogue that is occurring within the developer, political and academic communities.
2°C’s name is based on the need to keep the global average temperature from rising more than 2 °Celsius above pre-industrial levels in hopes of preventing irreversible and damaging climatic changes.
